Gravas del Bío-Bío, a Sauvignon Blanc that expresses all of the typicity and elegance of the variety. The wine comes from Mulchén in the Bío Bío Valley, where the soils and climate are ideal for the production of high-end white wines such as this one. The Andes Mountains play an essential role for the cool temperatures it provides the vineyard, helping to produce grapes with tremendous fruit expression and balanced acidity.
Denomination of Origin
Quitralmán Vineyard, D.O. Mulchén, Bío-Bío Valley.
Located in one of Chile’s southernmost wine regions, 194 m asl on the southern bank of the Bío-Bío River. The proximity to the Andes Mountains and the red clay and mineral soils of volcanic origin produce a fresh and elegant white wine with balanced acidity. The vines are clone 1 and trellised to vertical shoot position and guyot.
The grape’s growing and ripening seasons were later than usual because the average maximum temperature was lower than in previous seasons. The season’s rainfall was 1,032 mm, primarily concentrated during the winter months.
75% in fourth use French oak barrels and 25% in stainless steel tanks for 6 months.
The red clay soils at the Quitralman Vineyard are of volcanic origin and located on the southern slope of the Bío-Bío River Basin.
